In my opinion, an 1895 ain't hardly correct without one! (except maybe a SRC). I'm a big fan of the "Climbing Lyman", I have one on my .405 '95. My late fathers M64 carbine was fitted with one as was his older brothers Remington 141. Now I'm thinking of picking up an 1894 rifle in .25-35 that because it has a Lyman. crazy

I have a question on those Lymans. Given about a 28" sight radius, .008" movement of the rear sight equals 1 inch at 100 yards. x/28 = 1/3600. It's actually .007777777" movement but let's not quibble over billionths. So if that sight has 2" of travel, that's 257 MOA elevation adjustment. Even if it's only 1" of travel that's still 128 MOA. Now the numbers can be juggled some but you only need about 45 MOA elevation change to go from a 100 yard sight in to 1000 yards in a typical .30-06 load.

So my question is, exactly what was that much elevation adjustment supposed to be used for?

This^^^^. I have a 21 on my .35 WCF. And there had been one my SRC. Wished they weren't an arm and a leg, I'd like 2 or 3 more. Someday may opt for a Providence tool copy. It's a perfect hunting sight for the 1895.

As for all the elevation on the 21, originally The 95 was offered in ctgs like 38/72, 40/72, etc. May have been useful on them. I took my 2016 bull almost 200 yds. With the 35. No additional sight adjustment. Maybe a bit of Kentucky windage involved. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Could always tell when the gunshow was in town! Some CAS fellow would come in Monday morning with a "new" 97 in two zip lock bags! There's just something about them fellers and screwdriver slots.

Can kinda kick myself for not grabbing one of the better ones that would come thru while I was still working. But I had like 6 Model 12's at the time. Think I'm down to 3 of them now.

I found this one at a gun show, reblued and refinished, I had it cut down. I had another 97 original condition that my son used to kill his first turkey so I gave him the gun. I love them old guns....they're not makin em anymore. smile
